yes i searched

i know this is probably a dumb question but when you replace automatic hubs with manual hubs do you have to put in a manual transfer case too?

You have to convert back to the 98-00 style knucles and run the vacuum line for the vacuum hubs. Then it's as simple as popping off the factory vacuum hub and popping on the AVM manual hubs. No manual transfer case is needed. Both manual and automatic t-cases are in 2wd until you either turn the **** or move the stick... Still the same.

Not correct. To put manual hubs on an 03 you're going to need the 98-00 CV shafts and the wheel bearing units. You do not need the knuckles and you don't need any vacuum parts since your going manual hubs anyways. Its not gonna be cheap since the wheel bearings are nearly $200 each. I don't see any real benefit of switching to the older setup.

Agreed. Maybe some savings in Fuel Mileage other than that no advantage. Its actually more likely to break.
